  • This is full of information and interesting details. The photographs and illustrations are absolutely lavish.However, the more modern periods were skimmed over far too fast. The book takes us from the Crusader period to the 20th century in a matter of pages.


  • Beautiful photographs and illustrations, the book might be almost twenty years old but I still found it to be informative.
